I wasn't sure exactly which machine I would like to test it out on, but finally decided on my little Baby Lock Anna as it's the machine I use when I travel. A little extra lighting sounded wonderful, especially if I left my extra lighting at home. To be honest, I thought that a little extra light would be nice, but I really didn't think it would make that much of a difference. Guess what!!!, it does.
The kit arrived with an LED strip that has an adhesive backing, clips, and a power cord.
Before I attached the LED strip to my machine, I decided to just plug in the strip and see what it looked like. Like I said, I was pleasantly surprised with how much light came from these teeny tiny lights.The attaching process is done on the backside of the machine. The clip holds the cord in place on the back of the machine.
The on/off switch is attached to the side of the machine.
I decided to use the extra clip to hold the cord on the side as well.
Below is a picture prior to adding the LED light strip.
And here's after. You can see how lit up the surface area is. Like I said, I was absolutely amazed...and happy :) In the future, if I forget my extra lighting, it won't be an issue.Here's a video from Inspired LED that shows the entire process of attaching the LED strip, and better pictures than mine of the difference with and without the extra light.
Now for the good news!!! I installed the LED strip on my machine yesterday afternoon. I immediately contacted the company and told them how much I liked the product and asked if I would be able to host a giveaway. They got back to me right away with a resounding YES!!!! The only downside is that this giveaway is for U.S. residents only. The reason being that our electrical system is different than that in other countries. So sorry.
So, if you would like a chance to win an Inspired LED lighting kit for your machine,
1. You must be a U.S. resident
2. You must be a follower of this blog
3. Leave a message on this blog and let me know how you follow, Bloglovin, Feedly, email, etc.
I will announce the winner next Thursday, February 11, 2016.
Now that I have the strip on my little Baby Lock Anna, I want the strip on my Bernina too!
